Hostal Aldea Del Elqui
Ranked #6 of 20 Specialty Lodging in Vicuna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 3, 2011

Hostel Aldea de Elqui was a great find for the town. It was located just 2 blocks from the main plaza and 4 blocks from the bus station. My husband and I were in town to see the Mamalluca Observatory (1 block to the office) and to tour the Capel Pisco factory (just over 1.5km). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was large with a private bathroom and an amazingly comfortable bed. It was a bit noisy on the streets but only for a short while. The breakfast was an amazing spread of eggs, fruits, cereal, bread, jams and coffee. The place is very clean and well worth the price compared to the other places that were cheaper and run down. If visiting Vicuna, this is the place.

Good: Convenient location a couple blocks away from the star gazing tour shop. Huge breakfast custom made for you. Wi-fi works and is fast but doesn't reach the rooms. Outdoor garden and sitting area is lovely. Beds comfortable. Rooms clean. Free secure parking.

Bad: A bit overpriced. We paid 20,000 pesos (USD $40) for one night for two beds and breakfast.

After looking at a few places in vicuna picked this hotel not expecting much
but this hotel was a great surprise, thought it would be a little noisy with traffic from the
street but vicuna is not nyc, quiet as all heck at night. The owner although i don't
remember his name was a great host. The staff was just as friendly and hospitable.
The room i had was great, comfortable bed and incredibly constant and always hot
water. After coming from san pedro de atacama which has constant water problems
it was a pleasure to have a real shower. The breakfast which was included in the price
of the room was incredible. The owner just kept giving me more, from eggs to fruit to
cheese, the food just kept coming. Lastly in the back he has a massive garden, which the owner is always improving. Very beautiful garden with views of the mountains. This hotel is a great find. For the price one of the best i've stayed in, in chile.
